My pumpkins never amount to much but I do enjoy carving them.....

I've just bought myself a pumpkin carving kit ready for this years efforts!  :lol:
Snappy 

No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch.

I could give up chocolate but I'm not a quitter.

Rather surprisingly the Big Max has ended up as 48, while the Atlantic Giant has ended up as 39. No winners there, but would have thought the Atlantic Giant would do better.

I would take a photo, but the neighbours will think I am strange if I go to the garage with a tape measure and camera....

My neighbours think I'm strange anyway as I plant cabbage plants with a cordless drill.

If you want to be happy for a short time - get drunk.

If you want to be happy for a long time - fall in love.

If you want to be happy forever - take up gardening!

I do have some green ones ( not sure if they count) but they are only just large enough for a Jack O Lantern at a circunference of 26 inches .

Is the measurement around the circumference or pole to pole? 
Cheese makes everything better.
